He was speaking on the sidelines of unveiling of new range of Legion gaming personal computers (PCs) priced at Rs 89,999 onwards.
Katyal said the company started investing in gaming segment 5-6 years back and is now focussing on building Legion as strong brand in gaming segment.
He said the segment is growing at a fast pace in India with various estimates projecting the growth at 50-100 per cent.
“This means it will become 5-10 per cent of the total PC market. We have seen it happening in countries like Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia. If it becomes 10 per cent in Indian market, it will become a large market,” Katyal said.
Like its competitors, Lenovo too has launched products for serious gamers and sub-gamers.
Katyal said traction is huge in age bracket of 24-30 who are fresh in jobs and don’t have price issues.
